Some great things have been happening with Chase over the last two days! First, they increased the standard offer on the Chase Freedom from 10,000 points to 20,000 points (for a limited time). To read more about that, read this post from yesterday. After that, they released a modified offer on the Chase Sapphire Preferred card – earn 5,000 additional points if you add an authorized user and they make a purchase with their card.
However, there is another offer available now for the Chase Sapphire Preferred card that gives you 50,000 Ultimate Rewards after spending $3,000 in the first 90 days. The authorized user offer from the regular offer also applies to this offer – so add another 5,000 Ultimate Reward points after the authorized user uses the card. This makes a total of 55,000 Ultimate Reward points. This is an awesome deal! It has not been this high for quite some time. There are just two catches. The first is that the new annual fee is $125 (fee waived the first year), as opposed to the $95 annual fee on the current Chase Sapphire Preferred.
The second is that the offer is somewhat hit and miss. Here is how you can make sure the offer displays properly for you. You need to make sure it is showing the 50,000 point offer before you apply! Also, take a screenshot of the offer in case you have problems later. This does not seem to be a new product so you will more than likely not be eligible for this offer if you have already had the Chase Sapphire Preferred.
To make the offer apply, click on the application link and open it in some type of private browser window (like IE InPrivate browsing or Google Chrome Incognito) and the offer should come up. It will not show up if you just click the link without doing this first. This is not hacking anything about the application. It is just that sometimes the banks install cookies on your system to allow for quicker login. These same cookies help to redirect you to certain offers depending on whether you have other cards.
